|Fingers ready to hit start. 😂|
|Before hitting the gravel. We had|
so many to comment on our tights.
Ps. They are from DonaJo
There seemed to be hills, hills and more hills. Oh and even some down hill. Needless to say, lots of hills. 😬 The best part of the gravel portion was when it finally ended and we had some cuties doing cartwheels. I'd like to think they were just as excited for us to be off the gravel too. 😄
I fell apart at mile 7 and again at mile 10. Mile 7 was probably the worst, I felt like my legs couldn't go anymore. I've had this happen usually around Mile 11 during the past few half marathons. I am starting to work harder on my fuel intake so as soon as I got that feeling, I sucked down a huma gel. Miranda pretty much pulled me along during those miles. Especially around Mile 10 when she yelled at me to keep running. I may have whined just a little bit. 🙈 She mainly yelled for me to quit looking at my watch. I really didn't realize how close I was to finishing with a PR. It still didn't hit once we crossed the finish line. I almost ran out of gas as we were running towards the finish line. Thankfully Miranda yelled at me again to keep going... haha!
So about that PR... the last half I ran was in December and there I finished in 2:37:58. It took me 2 years to finally get a new PR. I ended up shaving another 3 minutes and 6 seconds this time. Whoo Hoo!! Maybe hills are the key....
|Whoo Hoo!!! This girl is awesome|
|Maybe one day I'll have a great finish line photo.|
|Medals are handed out, so I made some for|
a few running buddies.
The next race is Oak Barrel and guess what, there are hills. I'm kinda excited about this one. I'm still setting only one goal..to finish. That goal seems to be working so lets keep it going.
